Educators are invited to participate in More! Rocks in Your Head (MRIYH) a full-day earth science workshop for third through eighth grade teachers in the greater Houston area. MRIYH covers a full scope of earth science topics for elementary and middle school teachers, who will be guided in each section with background information, vocabulary and projects, plus cross-curricular segments and ideas for the gifted and talented students. All projects are handson, making earth science a fun and memorable learning experience. Janie Schulke, MRIYH creator and presenter, holds a bachelor degree in geology from the University of Houston. After working for Geophysical Services, Inc. from 1977-1981, Janie was a substitute teacher and taught a geology class at College for Kids, a summer program for Gifted/Talented third through eighth graders. Many of the activities taught in the MRIYH workshops were created for College for Kids. Janie has been producing the workshop for 12 years, enhancing and increasing the teaching of earth science across America and training more than 3,800 teachers.
